was a master piece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality. >> woodruff: still defense attorney insisted sandusky was the victim of a rush to judgme judgment. >> today it may be his rights and tomorrow it may be your rights. you're going to say wait a minute i need more times to do this. i have a defense i'm innocent. but everybody thinks you're guilty so why the heck waste time. let's just get this over with. >> woodruff: sandusky plans to appeal. that's not the end of the scandal that shook penn state. two college administrators gary shultz and tim curly, face trial on charges of failing to report sandusky to the police and lying to a grand jury. long-time head football coach joe paterno was fired last november and died in january of lung cancer. the n.c.a.a. later imposed severe sanctions on the school's football program. for more on all this we turn to a man who has been covering the story for the associated press. he was in the courtroom today. mark, thank you for joining us. we know that jerry sandusky spoke before the sentence was handed down. what did he say? >>
